$.05 per point per bushel on drying and usually 2% + shrink. I usually figered at 17% moisture corn I was loosing 20 bushels @ market price, lets say $7.00 = $140 + $50 for drying so I'd loose $190 per load. That adds up fast on 1000 bushels a truck!

wet soybeans are a bargin to sell compared to dry ones. dry ones below 10% moisture cost a ton to sell. it just doesn't show on the ticket. you can always ask your seed dealer for the formula.....every test plot has the yield moved up to 13% moisture. if the difference was small, you'd never hear about it!

Most places around here is 1% of the purchase price for every half point. Which would be about 28 cents per point now. When beans were $15 it would be 30 cents per point.

You get back about half of that 30 cents with the weight of the moisture you sold.

I would rather be a point wet and get docked 30 cents then be 3 points to dry and miss out on the lost moisture weight.

It usually varies by elevator. Typically the smaller mom and pop elevators are the worst for shrinking the grain and then charging a drying fee on top of it. USDA uses a straight .12 factor but elevators do not have to follow the usda standard.
